With the recent pick up of Will Ferrell’s Casa De Mi Padre by Pantelion Films, we can expect to see an influx of marketing material before the film’s March 16 release. First up are two new posters from the Spanish-language comedy that presents Ferrell as a Mexican rancher who must save his family’s farm while defeating a notorious drug lord and winning the hand of the lovely Sonia. Casa De Mi Padre also stars Gael Garcia Bernal (The Motorcycle Diaries) and Genesis Rodriguez (Man on a Ledge).
We also have the new one-sheet for director David Mackenzie’s Perfect Sense which stars Ewan McGregor (Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace) and Eva Green (Casino Royale). The 2011 Sundance hit features McGregor and Green as two strangers who form a romantic connection in the face of a widespread epidemic that is wiping out all sensory perception. Hit the jump to check out the posters.
A new trailer for the drama Perfect Sense has been released. Starring Ewan McGregor and Eva Green, the film centers on a chef and a scientist who fall in love just as a global epidemic is beginning to unravel. This new trailer isn’t as entrancing as the first one we saw, but it’s still fairly effective. I like McGregor and Green a lot, and the film seems to be chock-full of emotional moments. The epidemic that permeates the background of the film is played very straight, so it’s a little like Contagion with love.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Directed by David MacKenzie (Young Adam), the film was picked up for distribution by IFC Films but is currently without a US release date.
About a month ago we posted the first images from Perfect Sense, a Sundance 2011 entry led by Ewan McGregor and Eva Green with the cryptic logline, “A poetic and magnetic love story about two people who start to fall in love just as the world begins to fall apart.” I think, for now, it’s best we leave it there.
Thankfully, this newly released trailer agrees with me. It captures the pure melodrama indicated by the logline without revealing too much about the story. So you can watch this footage and simply admire how beautifully the David Mackenzie-directed film is lit without spoiling things. However, if you would like to know more about the plot, we’ve included new story details alongside the trailer after the jump.
Continuing our coverage of the films that will be featured at the Sundance Film Festival in January, today we bring you images from two dramatic films that will premiere out-of-competition at the festival: I Melt With You and Perfect Sense. I Melt With You stars Rob Lowe, Thomas Jane, Jeremy Piven, Carla Gugino and Christian McKay. Directed by Mark Pellington (The Mothman Prophecies), the film focuses on four lifelong friends who, during their annual get-together, realize that their lives haven’t exactly turned out the way they expected.
Perfect Sense stars Ewan McGregor, Eva Green, Ewan Bremner, Stephen Dillane, and Connie Nielsen. From director David Mackenzie (Young Adam), the film is described as a “poetic and magnetic love story.” Hit the jump to check out the images, as well as a brief synopsis for both films. The 2011 Sundance Film Festival runs from January 20 – 30th.
One of the things I like most about Ewan McGregor (other than his dreamy Scottish eyes) is that you never know what he’s going to do next. It’s impossible to pigeon-hole the guy because one day he might be doing some god-awful summer blockbuster like “Angels & Demons” (read my review!) and the next he’s getting all sorts of crazy critical acclaim for stepping up and doing “I Love You Phillip Morris”. He’s an exciting actor and one you can’t dismiss with a simple one-line summation.
So it should be no surprise that McGregor is re-teaming with his “Young Adam” director David Mackenzie for “The Last Word” which The Hollywood Reporter describes as “a love story set in a city where people are slowly losing their sensory perception.”
That has to be awkward. It can’t be easy to express love when you’re losing your senses.
Man: I love you.
Woman: What? I’m going deaf.
Man: Then let me write the words I feel.
Woman: I’m already blind. Please don’t tell me you love me. I already know you’re hideous. Plus, I’m totally numb down there anyway.
Man: Our love will stand the test of time and sensory perception!
